With the Murphy bed down, one looks out into a forest-a rare sight on the edge of a city. The cabinet panel hiding the kitchen is, in fact, a giant pocket door that slides silently into a walk-in closet, off-camera, at left. Bumpered guides keep the door aligned, so theres no need for unsightly floor tracks.
Clei offered a modern take on the Murphy bed called Compact Living Solutions. It's a modular unit of wall bed with sofa, to which you can add storage and shelving units. The styling is young and sleek. The wall bed unit was drawing a crowd on the floor both in the closed and open positions. Once you customize your unit, it is delivered to your door flat packed to be installed by a contractor. It's perfect for small urban dwellings, studios and guestrooms.
